Houston has what 3, 4 rover dealerships? Its full of v8 rover engine vehicles that see regular service. Its not full of 292s. I have a car with a 250, I'm well aware of its parts availability.
So as if you were well aware, you would not be aware of the parts unavailability you so boastfully claim.

PM me the parts suppliers (not Rover dealerships), your general local generic parts guys that are in your area and I'll call them and report the results here. Then we'll see how your boastful claims are a fact or a clouded view of boastful bullshit. You can also include a few additional industrial and or marine parts supply going concerns.

I'll report with the time, who I spoke to, in stock, or when it is available for pickup.

Here's a marine example online and not locally to you, but there are plenty that are:

Here's one for an industrial forklift:

Here's one for a chevy truck or van:
https://www.dbelectrical.com/product...-4l-73-81.html

Here's one on eBay, be aware these are the same as all the 1st through 5th generation Chevy, Pontiac, Olds, GM V8s, V6, straight 6, and 4 cylinders.:
https://www.walmart.com/ip/3HP-High-...BoCHhkQAvD_BwE

Included are all the after market high torque mini starters with adapter blocks.
These are on the shelves in big cities and smallsville USA, Canada, Mexico, and worldwide!
See here: https://www.connollymarine.com/DYNAF...p/msd-5095.htm

Go for it...

Very poor and weak comeback.
If you are not adding value get off this thread and stop trolling.
Your starter availability is weak boasting and less than pure bullshit and you can't substantiate any of your trolling boasts when you get called out for making them.

Move on, troll.
MOVE ON and rain on someone else's parade, Scheisskopf!

Dude I solved your efi folly. Ive been plenty supportive and held back my opinions on this swap but to think an engine that was all but dead before 110s were even made has worldwide immediate availability is crazy. You can look at store availability on just about any parts store website if you care to. Youre acting like a douche

Don't hurt yourself patting your back with the huge contributions you think you have added to this thread.
When you design, develop, and produce a better conversion, post it up and then I'll talk shit about your work and call you dude. Then say you are acting like a douche. Wake up and add some value for a change. When you get it done, post it up in a new thread and get off this one.

Again go for it.

Robert in Dallas. Stop acting like an ass. If you've got something worthy of posting do it in another thread. While your over there please tell us of all the out-of-the-box conversions you've accomplished and your long history/ownership of Land Rovers. Enquiring minds want to know.

Robert,
To know Robert Davis is to love Robert Davis.
To love Robert Davis is to understand Robert Davis.
To understand Robert Davis is know Robert Davis.
It is the Robert Davis triangle and yes I have been dipping into my bourbon collection tonight.
Lets all just take a deep breath and think about happy things like cold beer, puppies and clean driveways. You may not think a 292 is a good swap but others do. I'm a factory diesel guy but I admire people who blaze their own trail.
